“We had a very tragic accident tonight, and one of our fans lost their lives reaching over the wall trying to catch a ball. As an organization and as team members and staff, we are very sorry for this, and our thoughts and prayers are with the family, “said team president Nolan Ryan in a statement.
The incident occurred in the second inning, when Oakland Athletic Conor Jackson hit a foul ball and Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton picked up the ball and threw to the fan. The fan was with his son about six to eight years old.
